The Monkey Puzzle Tree adding a pop of colour to Platform!
The Monkey Puzzle Tree collaborates with established fine artists to produce truly unique fabrics and wallpapers, created to add a lasting sense of beauty and individuality to both commercial and residential interiors, set to add bold prints and pops of colour to Platform at #CDW10!
Launched by Charlotte Raffo in 2017, the business combines her lifelong passion for interiors with her expertise in luxury textile and product development.
A strong social conscience is at the core of the business. The artists are paid a generous royalty and all products are made by well established British manufacturers with excellent environmental and ethical records.
Based in Leeds, the company name comes from Charlotte’s fondness for the strange but beautiful Monkey Puzzle trees. When Charlotte was born, her parents planted one in their garden, which grew with her – including eventually producing small, baby trees at the same time that Charlotte had her two children.
‘We run The Monkey Puzzle Tree like an independent record label, where each artist retains their own style, identity and creative freedom and the aim is that we can help them earn a passive income which will fund them to continue with their original work.’ – Charlotte Raffo
